Happy Saturday! It’s going to rain all day but I’m not complaining. First I really hope this rain washes away all the tree pollen causing allergies and secondly it’s actually warm rain instead of freezing rain that we have in winter. I hope it’s much sunnier by you today. Have a great day 🙂
Friday started off pretty good for us. Bailey and I went out before getting ready for the day. I made scrambled eggs and paired it with toast topped with cream cheese and chia seeds. Cream cheese and chia seeds may sounds like a weird combo but trust me and try it.
At work, there was randomly hot dogs and burgers that the building manager grilled. Honestly I have no idea why this happened since we have another barbecue in a few weeks but no complaints here. I opted for a hot dog since I saw one that was fairly charred which is the best in my opinion. Alright I know I’m from Chicago so I shouldn’t put ketchup on a hot dog but I did and I added some mustard too. The rest of my lunch consisted of carrots, pretzels and hummus to keep the balance.
Once I got home from work, I quickly changed and headed out for a run. The workout was 4 x 800m at 5k pace with 400m recovery followed by 4 x 100m strides with 1 minutes rest. It was toasty out there but I got it done. A little over 5 miles to kick off the weekend. When I got home, I was rolling and Alex came back from his run too. Somehow he beat me to the shower so Bailey and I hung out before I rinsed off.
The rest of the night was pretty relaxing! I read a little bit of my new book called Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson. I’m not positive what I think of it yet but I’ll report back once I’m a little farther int. For dinner, we kept it simple with tortellini and pesto plus some garlic bread on the side. We watched an episode of Billions before taking a family walk to round out the night. After an episode of The Office, I headed off to bed.
Question of the day: What do you put on a hot dog?
